The archeological excavation in piazza S.

Abstract

The archeological excavation in piazza S. Maria dei Battuti, in Treviso, was conducted from 2016 to 2018 under the scientific direc-tion of the local Superintendency as a preliminary to an urban renewal project which was to include the installation of new infrastructure underground and the reconstruction of the existing pavement. On the basis of archival data, historians had concluded that this site was first occupied in the Late Middle Ages and that its configuration had always been similar to the one it has now, i.e. an open space. Archeological research revealed a situation which was completely different. The remains of several different buildings were found, as well as two different burial grounds and a complex stratigraphy was observed which was related to a long period of time ranging from the Early Middle Ages to the contemporary era. This research demonstrates how this neighborhood was densely built up over period of at least six centuries. The data that we acquired during the excavation represent new and important elements that are useful for the reconstruction of medieval Treviso.
